I have had the van for about a year now. If you add the actuall hours I bet I have less than a week or two of total work into it. No, I have only driven it around in "flatbed mode" to get the metal and stuff. I'm going to have all of my poop in a group before BIGFOOT gets a hold of me. Yeah, it is 14.5k gvwr.....and dot numbers will probably be needed.

It is still as seen in the pics posted here. I drilled a few holes and put some nice big bolts on the hinges as a stop to keep the gate vertical instead of the spring pulling it down to the front. I will make them easily removeable for the two days when I go out of town and want the ramp to go down to the front. I also began to wire the tail lights in.
I'm not a Miracle Worker, if it looks like crap now, it will look like crap with stripes when I am done.
